“remember, people can start up boats right next to outdoor tables!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

the view of the bay was wonderful, the food was delicious (even if they didn't have the hoped-for perch) and the boats were fun to look at until they started up - right as our food was served! LOL one forgets these fine details when the place has such an appealing setting. And it is! Waitress who's name I can't remember was delightful and served cheerfully.

“Not fully functioning, yet”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 23, 2013

Often out of menu items such as steamed clams, or certain kinds of beer. Service can be spotty--not enough wait staff at times. Great location and facility.

“Decent fare and live music!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2013

I like visiting here by car and by boat. If you come in by boat, the owner personally assists with tying the boat up to the dock which is always a HUGE plus!

Outdoor seating is awesome with a great view of the lake, sandbar and bay.

Food is relatively good depending on what you like. (I'm not a fish eater and that seems to be what everyone likes the best!) The service is pretty good and if you by chance get stuck eating indoors, the ambiance is still quite pleasant.

After dinner head upstairs to the covered open air deck for live music all weekend long! Of all the places in Sodus Point.... this one is my favorite.

Enjoy!

“Great little find!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2013

My husband and I just moved to Upstate NY and decided to take a little drive along Lake Ontario and ended up at Sodus Bay and had a nice lunch on the deck at Abe's. We had the BEST burgers!! Mine was a bacon and guacamole burger with cheese. At first I thought they forgot the guacamole but it was all encased in the melted cheese....and the bacon was crisp. Also enjoyed the sweet potato fries and lemonade. My husband got the bacon cheeseburger with regular fries and lemonade and loved it. The service was awesome. It was a great day to spend right on the little harbor watching the boats come and go. We will go again.
